With the shot clock winding down in the second quarter of Monday’s 116-102 win over the Chicago Bulls, Draymond Green did his best Steph imitation and launched a prayer from the blue Warriors logo at midcourt of the Chase Center.
By luck, perhaps, Green knocked it down just like his teammate.
“Logo Green,” Curry told reporters in his postgame video conference. “He might have a new nickname.”
Green never has been known for his shooting, but he was straight Splash Brother status on this one -- which is funny considering he has an abysmal 24.3 percent clip from 3-point range this year.
But Green knew this one was destined for nylon.
“As soon as it left my hand … to say I knew it was good from the logo is crazy -- I mean, I’m not going to sit here and act like I’m Steph -- but it felt good when it left my hand and I knew it would be somewhere in the vicinity of going in,” Green told NBC Sports Bay Area’s Bob Fitzgerald and Kelenna Azubuike postgame. “I just couldn’t tell whether it was really gonna go in or not, but it felt good when it left my hand.”
You know who loved the 3-pointer more than Green? The Dubs bench.
Curry returned after a five-game absence with a bruised tailbone but it looks like he's rubbing off on his teammates already.
